head shot of Scott Ste MarieIn recognition of dedication to the cause of mental health. 

Scott (BES ’13) lived at St. Paul’s as a first-year student in 2009 and was a residence Don before graduating in 2013. As a student at Waterloo, he suffered some anxiety and depression and learned that he could help himself by helping others. His focus is twofold: offering tips and strategies to those who need it, and helping to break the stigma around mental health by talking openly and honestly about the issues.

Scott shares insights, knowledge, and strategies with an online community of about 60,000 subscribers, primarily through social media posts and YouTube videos. His YouTube Channel, Depression to Expression, has over 56,000 subscribers and nearly four million views. He speaks regularly on the topic of mental health and has recently launched his new professional speaking business called Depression to Expression. Learn more at http://depressiontoexpression.com
